DescriptionPeek into the unknown world of Fiakerei (horse-drawn carriage driving). Who are the Fiakers? Where did they come from? And most importantly, where are they going in the evening after work? Get to the bottom of these secrets, and many more, by visiting the original Viennese Fiaker horse stable. For the first time, you'll have the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the traditional two teams of 'Lohnkutchen' (the original horse-drawn taxi!) Explore the unique Fiaker Horse Center in Vienna's 11th district of Simmering. An exclusive barn tour will give you insight into what's going on in a traditional Viennese Fiaker family business. Then, take a ride in an original Viennese Fiaker - the ubiquitous passenger transport of the 18th century - back to the city before the work of the Fiaker starts. During the carriage ride, you'll pass through the up-and-coming St. Marx district, heading to the city centre via the famous Ringstraße. You'll be dropped off at Michaelerplatz in the city center, a perfect place to continue your exploration of all of Vienna's top sites.
